    Raccoon Rescue! It was a cold winter morning when Kathy B in Planning and Zoning heard terrible screeching as
    she left her house. She discovered a raccoon with its head stuck in a hole in a tree almost 12 feet off the ground, and immediately
    called Animal Control. Officer A. J. McCall arrived, assessed the problem, and told Kathy that he wasn’t going to
    leave until the animal was freed. After an hour of chipping away at the wood surrounding the raccoon’s head, he used a
    critter-getter to finish pulling him out. Kathy says the beast was a little wobbly, but otherwise in good shape. She sends a
    heart-felt thanks to Officer McCall for his caring and perseverance

    Just a little tiny paper that circulates around the local area. Not even online! He had to send me a link.

    I can just see Jamie climbing up that tree.

    Aw that was sweet. I'm sure the racoon more than appreciated his dedication. :D

    Actually, I expect the raccoon wouldn't have been grateful for the rescue at all. It probably would've ripped Jamie's lips off given half a chance.
